Wagyu Beef Is the Star at This New BGC Restaurant

Our eyes are on the Katsu Sando sandwich with-what else-Wagyu!

(SPOT.ph) True-blue carnivores will know that wagyu beef is prized for a reason. Sourced from cattles of a specific breed that are given the star treatment, the resulting meat has topnotch marbling and an exceptionally flavorful, melt-in-your-mouth character. Good news: You can soon indulge your hankerings at Wagyu Studio—a soon-to-open restaurant at the Finance Center in Bonifacio Global City that specializes in all things Wagyu. They're opening their doors on October 31.

"Wagyu is and always will be the centerpiece of the Wagyu Studio," says operations director Lui Clavano in a statement. "We believe in preparing high-quality ingredients in most the creative ways, adding to the experience above and beyond our unequaled Wagyu." At the helm of the kitchen is Chef Yoji Kitayama, who has worked for the luxury hotels like the Hotel Okura Amsterdam, Grand Hyatt Tokyo, and more.
